‘Imma Rachel’ Memorial Outdraws Rabin Event
Less than 25,000 people gathered to remember former Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin in Tel Aviv Saturday night while more than 70,000 prayed at Rachel’s Tomb.
The actual memorial dates follow each other by one day on the Hebrew calendar, but the major event for Rabin’s memorial always is held the Saturday night before the actual date of his death, which this year is on Sunday. The anniversary of the death of Rachel fell on Saturday this year.
